Not so much discovered, but REdiscovered - THE KINKS
I've always been a Kinks fan, but never really ventured far beyond their best known hits.
I've been getting into some of their lesser known material lately, and they just blow me away.
Ray Davies is a genius.
"Village Green Preservation Society" is perhaps the most overlooked classic album in history.
Other great Kinks albums I've been discovering, "Arthur - Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire"(I'd only ever known the song 'Victoria' until now) and "Muswell Hillbillies".

My Kinks awakening is akin to someone who's always loved 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' and 'Hey Jude', but has never heard the 'Revolver' album except maybe for the songs 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'Yellow Submarine'.

Katy Perry...heard about her on the internet, then heard her song on the radio a few days ago. Her CD came out yesterday, went out and got it, and I'm really liking her stuff.

I´m into the Pixies these days. I´ve listened to their albums "Surfer Rosa", "Dolittle", "Bossa Nova" and "Trompe Le Monde" a few times lately. Love their raw rocking sound: Black´s screams, Kim´s harmonies, their guitar sound,....
